You're right, I was just thinking of the US - other places have their own timelines.
Our great-grandparents (some of them) were born in a world without movies, radios, records, phones, planes, cars, electric power, or even plastic; and indoor toilets & showers were rare - where things like 'free love' & 'contraception' were considered horrid & unmentionable, and 'short dresses' unthinkable - but where you could get opium at the drugstore counter...

My dad remembers his grandpa (born pre-CW) visiting them after they moved to the city and had an indoor bathroom. My great-grandfather's quote: "I god, it ain't right t' shit where ya eat."

(I love the "I god" part. Sounds like Lonesome Dove.)
